Seasonal Sensory Sentiments

Winter Feels: Defending your Skin

Lee Stapleton and guest co-host Laura Finnimore discuss the tactile differences between lotions and creams, along with why we use more lotions in the summer and more creams in the winter. Demo samples will include panel references Vaseline Intensive Care Nourishing Moisture, Eucerin Original Healing Cream, and Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream as well as La Roche-Posay Triple Repair Moisturizing Cream.

Let’s not forget the scents that say Winter! They will discuss common wintry scents for skincare and “tell what they smell” for Hempz Merry Berry Forest and Ulta Sweet Shimmer Holiday Cookie, along with others if time allows. Start thinking about your favorite scents so you can drop them in the comments!
